Author Insights: The Paris Photo on Wednesday, April 14th from 4-5:00pm (ET) on Zoom 

Free w/Advance Registration! 

Named by Kirkus as “one of the best books of 2019,” Jane S. Gabin's The Paris Photo is set in Paris near the end of WWII and in the present. Based on truth and inspired by her father’s actions, Gabin’s thoroughly researched novel tells of a young US Army soldier who arrives in Paris and forms a friendship with one particular mother and son. The repercussions of this relationship carry forward into the present day. 

With the frightening rise of anti-Semitism and xenophobia today, many of the book’s messages are especially meaningful. 

Join Gabin to hear about the real-life events that led her to write the novel and learn more about German occupation of Paris from this personal perspective.
